‘We will remember them’ Honouring our UK Armed Forces and Civilians who served their country in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Gulf Region

The Iraq and Afghanistan Memorial will be unveiled on Thursday 9th March.

The service will commemorate the UK Armed Forces and British citizens who volunteered during these conflicts across government, non-government and charity organisations.

The memorial also pays tribute to those who worked on the humanitarian side of the operation, whether civilian or military; working with local communities, across areas such as health and education. Some of these volunteers paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Over 2,500 guests have been invited and the ceremony will include music, prayers and readings.

Forces TV will be covering the memorial at Westminster from 10:30am (UK), with exclusive interviews from veterans involved in the conflicts.

Watch British Forces News on Forces TV on Sky 264, Virgin 277, Freesat 165, or online at www.forces.net.
